Life After Kids is thrilled to welcome, a true social media expert and longtime friend of mine, Teri Thompson, who co-authored (with Beverly Macy) the recent release ,”The Power of Real-Time Social Media Marketing.”
Teri and I met when we both worked in broadcast television in the creative advertising and promotion departments of the major TV networks. In fact, we worked together several times during our 20 plus year careers in that business and I know her to be a fabulous colleague and wonderful friend.
A few years ago, like many of us, Teri had to “re-invent” herself in order to stay employable in this downsized economy and her story of what she’s doing now is an inspiring testament to the power of reinvention at any stage of life
Then, Jen Friel, from the very popular blog and soon to be major television series Talk Nerdy to Me Lover will be dropping in to discuss her year of homelessness, the power of faith, and our exciting plans for this coming Sunday covering the Oscar red-carpet at “The Night of 100 Stars” (the official 2011 Academy Awards viewing party at the Beverly Hills Hotel), with fellow vlogger, Zennie Abraham of Zennie62.com.
If you don’t know who Jen is, you must find out! This amazing young woman with a bright personality and infectious laugh to match, is wise beyond her years. And, even though she is far from entering mid-life or a life with or without kids, you’ll be inspired by her stories of reinvention! Plus, you must hear about her 30 day “BJ” diet…I guarantee it’s a story you won’t want to miss.
So catch this all on Thursday at 8p ET/5p PT, February 28th on MingleMediaTV and if you miss the live webcast I will be posting the show later for your viewing pleasure.
This year’s Blog World Expo was bigger, bolder and better than ever. From the speakers to the sponsors, everyone and everything was first class all the way. I am not the only one who thought this way, most of my fellow attendees I spoke with agreed that the panels were insightful, the keynote speakers entertaining and informative and the parties, after parties and after-after parties were spectacular! I will be adding many more posts and videos over the coming days with names, details, and photos! Sorry folks, what happened in Vegas isn’t going to stay in Vegas – it’s gonna turn up here and, of course, Facebook! In the meantime, check out a mini-preview of who I spoke with below.
As a correspondent for Mingle Media TV Network and for my weekly show Life After Kids, I had the pleasure of chatting with Emmy Award-winning producer, Mark Burnett, about many things and his new show, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” the bloggers’ blogger, Darren Rowse (@problogger), speaker and author of “Unmarketing,” Scott Stratten (@unmarketing), co-founder of Blog World Expo, Rick Calvert (@blogworld), social media expert and author, Mari Smith *@marismith) and the geeks’ geek and host of “This Week in Tech,” Leo LaPorte to name just a few. So please be patient, I have hours of footage to get through and edit and many hours of writing to do, but I guarantee that these are interviews with great information and well worth waiting for.
Plus, if you weren’t able to attend Blog World this year or maybe you missed a few of the panels, for the first time EVER the organizers are offering access to ALL the panels and keynote sessions online. Here’s the link for more information and to order!
Until the next time…ask yourself, “isn’t it time you followed your bliss?”
Started the day with a cuppa joe and a livestream with Desiree Peeples aka @MommyReporter for her show on MingleMediaTV - Blog Builders!
I am excited to be covering the event for Mingle Media TV Network, and I hope you will let me know if you will be there so we can meet up “IRL” – if we have enough interest, we are trying to get a Mingle Media TV Network tweetup happening as many of our other show hosts will be there such as Lee and Paul Reyes Fournier of Relationship Rehab and Desiree of BlogBuilders and Mommy Reporter.com
